Client Registration Methods
There are several ways to register clients to your SUSE Manager Server.
For Salt clients, we recommend that you register clients using the SUSE Manager Web UI. For more information, see Register Clients with the Web UI.
If you want more control over the process, have to register many clients, or are registering traditional clients, we recommend that you create a bootstrap script. For more information, see Register Clients with a Bootstrap Script.
For Salt clients and even more control over the process, executing single commands on the command line can be useful. For more information, see Register on the Command Line (Salt).
The client must have the date and time synchronized correctly with the SUSE Manager Server before registration.
You must create an activation key first, to use bootstrap script or command line method. For more information about creating activation keys, see Activation Keys.
Do not register the SUSE Manager Server to itself. The SUSE Manager Server must be managed individually or by using another separate SUSE Manager Server. For more information about using multiple servers, see Using Multiple Servers to Manage Large Scale Deployments.
